The veteran support sector is significantly large, the last figure I have heard of the number of organisations is close to 4,200. Now that is significant, We at ExFor+ believe that the funds that are often donated to the Veteran support sector per annum in the region of £863m could be utilised more effectively if they were donated to a single overarching organisation with the aim and goal of supporting veterans and their communties.
At present there are a small number at the top of a very big tree that recieive a larger proprotion of these funds, and this often leads to large organisations, with large premisies and administrative staff costs.
Our question I suppose is why not give directly to the veteran and the communities in which they live? to create significant change to the lives of those leaving service.
Well is this possible? it is, through ExFor+ as we are veterans supporting veterans and the communtiies in which they live. The reality is though that without changing all mindsets there will be many organisations looking to support the veteran communtiy, we welcome Charities, CIO's and CIC's to post links to their fundraising pages, and those who are fundraising for the above outlined organisations to post their links to raise funds to support #Veterans and welcome them to utilise our forum to spread the word of the positive work that they do.
Again a single organsiation like ExFor+ staffed by veterans supporting veterans and their communities is our aim and passion and if you would like to support us please do feel free to provide support funding via our fundraising pages or directly through PayPal links on our website.
